We have been experiencing warm, higher then normal temperatures where I live. Nice considering it's January, not so nice because it has meant freezing rain and rain are usually on the weather menu.
Since we have been having so much rain I decided playing with "Shower of Love" was kind of an appropriate stamp to play with this week. I think this stamp could be used for a number of different occasions like a wedding, bridal shower or Valentine's Day to name a few.
After colouring my stamp with alcohol markers I cut it out using a stitched rectangle die - I love the stitched look on my cards!
After cutting a piece of matching blue cardstock I ran it through my Big Kick to add the tiny heart detail in the corner. I used a banner die for my heart in the corner and used the larger heart cut out from that as an embellishment. The tiny heart from was added to my banner die and voila! A masculine colour/feel Valentine's Day card.
